Bennet. 'untamed, unabashed, wild, noisy, and fearless' (p.315) Lydia bursts into
the novel and our attention without waiting for more than a cursory introduction.
During the Bennet ladies' visit to Netherfield, ostentatiously to enquire after
Jane's health, when her mother orders their carriage: the youngest of her
daughters put herself forward. The two girls had been whispering to each other
during the whole visit, and the result of it was, that the youngest should tax Mr
Bingley with having ...

Lord, how I laughed! . . . And then when we came away it was such fun! . . . And
then we were so merry all the way home! We talked and laughed so loud" (221-
22). Energy in young women may be refreshing, as in Catherine Morland's noisy
and wild escapades on the green slopes, Marianne's outdoor rambles, and
Elizabeth's brisk walks. But Lydia is little more than a silly, self- indulgent,
obstreperous girl: "Lydia was Lydia still; untamed, unabashed, wild, noisy, and
fearless" (315).

willful bride's own eyes (and in those of her mother), but we are only told that “
Lydia was Lydia still; untamed, unabashed, wild, noisy, and fearless” (see p. 308)
. And to frustrate even further the demands of poetic justice, Mr. Wickham is
himself unabashed by the perfidy of his seduction of Lydia and the ignobility of
trading on a young girl's reputation to secure his own financial gain; as a result,
Elizabeth resolved in the future “to draw no limits . . . to the impudence of an
impudent man” ...

... smile to Wickham, who followed his lady, and wished them both joy, with an
alacrity which showed no doubt of their happiness. Their reception from Mr.
Bennet, to whom they then turned, was not quite so cordial. His countenance
rather gained in austerity; and he scarcely opened his lips. The easy assurance
of the young couple, indeed, was enough to provoke him. Elizabeth was
disgusted, and even Miss Bennet was shocked. Lydia was Lydia still; untamed,
unabashed, ...

Her traits range from her "lovely, playful disposition, which delighted in anything
ridiculous" (Austen 1966: 7) and her "quickness of observation" (9); to her being "
blind, partial, prejudiced, absurd" after reading Darcy's letter (143); to her feeling "
humbled" and "grieved" at the thought of losing Darcy's good opinion because of
Lydia's actions (213). The traiting of Lydia, on the other hand, remains consistent.
Even after her marriage, "Lydia was Lydia still; untamed, unabashed, wild, noisy,

Austen describes her as “untamed, unabashed, wild, noisy, and fearless” (297).
Wickham is described as handsome and charming in Elizabeth's early evaluation
but is later seen as the cad he was. In his book Jane Austen, Firkins says that, “
the word that embodies [Wickham] to my imagination at least is velvety. He is the
demure, pensive and pathetic rascal” (41). Marriage for Wickham is a business
